A king stops at nothing to satisfy his appetites, throwing the known world into bloody chaos. Handel’s timeless masterpiece of musical drama, featuring the hits ‘Cara Sposa’ and ‘Ombra Cara’, is a thrilling tale of sex, power and corruption.

Northern Ireland Opera, in association with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, presents the Irish première and all-Ireland tour of Handel’s Radamisto.

Acclaimed Irish theatre director Wayne Jordan makes his opera debut with award-winning Northern Irish designer Annemarie Woods, leading Irish conductor David Brophy and the Irish Chamber Orchestra.

Radamisto stars some of the best of Irish female vocal talent, including Derry mezzo-soprano and local favourite Doreen Curran in the title role, sopranos Aoife Miskelly and Sinéad Campbell, and mezzo-soprano Kate Allen.

Sung in English.

Generously supported by the Arts Council of Ireland.
